net: export device speed and duplex via sysfs
Andy Gospodarek [Fri, 2 Oct 2009 09:26:12 +0000 (09:26 +0000)]
This patch exports the link-speed (in Mbps) and duplex of an interface
via sysfs.  This eliminates the need to use ethtool just to check the
link-speed.  Not requiring 'ethtool' and not relying on the SIOCETHTOOL
ioctl should be helpful in an embedded environment where space is at a
premium as well.

NOTE: This patch also intentionally allows non-root users to check the link
speed and duplex -- something not possible with ethtool.

Here's some sample output:

# cat /sys/class/net/eth0/speed
100
# cat /sys/class/net/eth0/duplex
half
# ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
        Supported ports: [ TP ]
        Supported link modes:   10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                                100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
                                1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full
        Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
        Advertised link modes:  Not reported
        Advertised auto-negotiation: No
        Speed: 100Mb/s
        Duplex: Half
        Port: Twisted Pair
        PHYAD: 1
        Transceiver: internal
        Auto-negotiation: off
        Supports Wake-on: g
        Wake-on: g
        Current message level: 0x000000ff (255)
        Link detected: yes
